Introduction

Welcome to my Cho' Gath guide!



This guide will be really short but will go over the basics and some intermideate tactics to playing Cho' Gath. First things first, Cho gath does not stack hp and ap to go die in 2 seconds.
So you ready to learn the art of the beast? Then you came to the right place. Cho gath is like on of the most versatile champions in the whole game! Cho'Gath not only omnomomnom allday and get really fat but he also is a great asset to any team. Yup you heard it right, he will fit in most of the team comps that follow the current meta! I've like this champion so much ever since i started playing league of legends to now. It was really inspiring to see pros like HotshotGG play him so good and pretty much destroy the enemy team! Infact this build is what HotshotGG uses in his Cho'Gath pwnage

Runes

The Runes above focus on damage, this is good as more dmg = more lane pwnage. No, I'm serious! This build will be focusing on Auto Attacks of cho gath in the damage department. The runes will help his spells, especially early game when the shine the most!


Guide Top

Masteries

The masteries are pretty basic, utility is is pretty basic as cho gath needs the extra cdr and mspd in lane.


Guide Top

Items

The Items are focused on mainly the most gold out come possible. Start with REgrowth pendant and a pot if the lane is extremly hard. If you just wanna pwn your lane just get a dorans. The reasoning behind this is that in order for cho gath to keep on par with tankiness and damage, he needs alot of gold. SO you should be farming 24/7. There is nothing more beastly than a Cho'Gath with 200 + CS.

Frozen Heart gives you mana and much needed cdr along with sweet tanky attributes with some supporty style passive. Item well worth the cost for Cho' Gath.

FoN is pretty self explanotory, insane regen with the hp you get from feast.

So, you might be wondering, WHY WHY WHY NO WARMOGS?????
The answer is simple, it sucks on Cho'Gath it might be good on other bruisers, but Cho' Gath got a free warmogs, Feast. So why spent extra 3k gold on something you have with one of your skills?

The Extra Damage items are for Cho gath's Damage, why focus the tank, if he does nothing right? but with that damage if they dont focus you, they will regret dearly! You will be causing havoc on their carries with atmas damage and wits end attack speed while being the super unkillable beast you are!

Ofcourse, you are supposed to change this EVERY SINGLE GAME, Cho'Gath is a tanky bruiser, how tanky you are dpends on how much you counter build your enemy!


Guide Top

Skills

Never follow a set skill build on Cho'Gath.
The basic priorities are

    Feast
    Feral Scream
    Rupture
    Vorpal spikes
This is after level 6. Before this you need to ask yourself these questions: DO I have trouble last hitting this game? Get 1 or 2 levels in Vorpal Spikes. Should I focus on harrasing mainly while last hitting? Level up feral scream first

Rupture is the only skill you level late game, it is one of the hardest skill shots to land in the game. The enemys get a heads up and they have a huge *** time to get move around. It's only good to ambush anemiesin tiny pathways where you have to move one way or another, then you can aim it slight backwards of them, when they start running


Guide Top

EARLY GAME

FARM FARM FARM FARM ALL ALNING PHASE THE MOST IMPORTANT PART TO CHO GATH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Buy some wards to not die from ganks! and CONTINURE FARM.


Guide Top

Mid/Late game

Cho gath has two options here. He can either split push mid game, or gank other lanes, help em out. Always ward when split pushing. Late game he can roam with his team and secure barons with Feast. If you die and has to refill stacks, split push for a while then come back and fight with the team once refilled. When trying to initiate and there is two enemies near each other they will most likely run opposite directions so place your rupture fairly the the middle of the two leaning more twords one of thems escape path. Cho'Gath's initiation is extremly unreliable, so hope for your team to have another stun so it can help lane ruptre better :D.

NOTE: RED BUFF is really useful on cho with this build so you can stick on to targets with your aspd.

Summary

Remeber key to cho gath is winning your lane and that FARM!
